I believe the "B" group riders shorten the route between miles 6 and 12. The "A" group caught the "B" group riders on both evenings at about the 15 mile point near the speedway.
Friday was a swim, bike, run training day. Chip, Richard and I met The Cube, one of my fellow BeginnerTriathlete forum posters, at Drake Field behind the Peachtree City library on Willow Bend Road. This is also the site of the Peachtree City Triathlon transition area. We found that The Cube is a better swimmer than the rest of us. His coaching by Endurance Concepts must account for that. The PTC lake is a popular swim spot for EC athletes because several others showed up to swim and bike during the afternoon. I found the temperature of the water was perfect for my full wetsuit. The others all wore sleeveless wetsuits. The turbidity or cloudiness of the water was poor. It was very murky. The swim was a good opportunity to practice our sighting.

Note: When I came home from my Wednesday evening ride Susan was getting ready to feed Max. On the menu was Fillet Mignon and chicken strips. His dinner smelled so good that I had to eat some, to Max's dismay. Susan said that the meat had been in the freezer a while and we needed to get rid of it. Max said he would take care of it!
